I was on neurontin 5 years ago. It worked WONDERS for my nerve pain, then suddenly - taking gave me the most severe headaches I ever experienced in my life. A single 100 mg. pill would have me in so much pain I could not tolerate light or sound. Doctors took me off it for 6 months, then put me back on it and with the very first pill - massive headache. Well, 4 years later my nerve pain has reached an all time high and we are re-visiting the old treatments that failed in the past. Neurontin no longer gives me headaches AND it helps the nerve pain, but - and this is a biggie - It makes me into the nastiest person you ever met. About an hour after taking 100 mg. I get mad, angry, enraged. I feel violent like I want to break things or hurt people. It never did this to me in the past. I'm not taking any other meds, so its not a combination effect. i cant believe 100 mg. of this makes me so enraged. I cant do this to my family and co-workers so i've stopped taking it and will discuss it with the doc at the next visit. Has anyone else had this happen?
